Thanks for all your work with us during the class as it has probably been the best online training I have been too. I'm not going to do the optional labs but we just made a list of things we need to do on our FMC + FTD installs and I'm going to start working on those instead of playing in the lab environment. Thanks for all the real world examples and all your help. Good luck at the gym!— Ben Oliver
Thank you for the Firepower/FTD class. Going into the class I had very limited hands on experience with FMC/FTD. After taking the class I feel completely comfortable with my upcoming deployment and the management/maintenance after the deployment. You are very passionate about this area of networking and it shows in your enthusiasm about the subject and thoroughness in testing the code. The real life scenarios and live production network troubleshooting were beneficial and should come in handy when working on my own production network.— Benjamin J. Randolph, M.S.

I cannot speak highly enough about this class.— Bill Richardson
Almost everything I learned here was immediately applicable, absolutely practical and directly translated to my work. I put the skills, techniques and strategies into my production environment right away and was amazed at the difference in insight gained and effectiveness of this tool. Labs: There were so many labs. What sets this class apart is these aren't just "check-the-box" labs. They were explained, tested and directly translate into real-world use cases. Couple that with Todd and Eric having their hands on the student environments, bolstering understanding in all the parts of FTD that are business relevant. The Lab Materials: The Lab guide is a great deployment guide and invaluable reference resource. I will always have this manual within reach.
The Training Environment: Perfectly resourced, flawless operation and is a LIVE, production environment. The training pods so closely resembled my production environment that there is nothing "lost in translation".
Much more I could say. I absolutely made the right choice for training. I feel that I got so much more than what was paid for this class. I'm much better equipped to protect my network. Great Job!

AHRI engaged Todd Lammle to conduct a best practices review and examination of our recently deployed Cisco Firepower solutions. AHRI had concerns regarding the configuration and use of the system since it’s installation and more recently after a major cyber-attack. AHRI wished to review the systems in some depth and in several particular areas to contrast against best practices and general recommendations. In doing so, any concerns that raised significant threats could be addressed in the short-term while other recommendations could be planned to be remediated by AHRI staff in due time.— Bradley Slatten
We worked over several sessions within a week or so. The discussions and work was very helpful and comprehensive. AHRI had invested in Lammle training the year in early pre-deployment so Todd made several references to reinforce that investment as well as extended our understanding. AHRI felt we were in a much better position after this engagement and continues to leverage the results this this day.

I would highly recommend this FTD class for anyone considering putting a version of Firepower into their environment! You'll come out of it feeling comfortable implementing and managing whichever Firepower option you're considering (or already using, in our case).— Brett Mayo
